Mike Evans Catch Named Play of the Year

Posted Feb 4, 2017

Mike Evans' one-handed catch against the Falcons voted Bridgestone Performance Play of the Year during NFL Honors ceremony on Saturday.

Last month, the NFL singled out 32 of the top plays from the 2016 season and asked fans to vote for their favorite. Among those 32 preliminary selections were three plays by the Buccaneers. On Saturday at the annual NFL Honors, the NFL named one of those Buccaneers highlights the “Bridgestone Performance Play of the Year”: Mike Evans’ brilliant one-handed grab against the Atlanta Falcons!

In Week 9 on Thursday Night Football against a division rival, came down with a one-handed grab before taking a big hit. The catch was named the Catch of the Year by NFL.com. The other Buccaneers highlights up for the award were Jameis Winston’s impressive scramble and throw against the Bears, which was voted by Bucs fans as the top Bucs offensive play of the season, and Ryan Smith’s toe-touching save on a Bryan Anger punt, which Buccaneers fans named the Bucs defensive/special teams play of the year.

The Winston-to-Evans connection was listed as the number four play of the year on the countdown during the NFL Honors show.

Both highlights that made the Top Four Plays of the Year can be seen below.
